Re: Champagne banned from Cup Final changing rooms

At the end of the 1 day series last year in Cricket, the England players celebrated with Champagne while Adil Rashid and Moeen Ali just stood to the side away from it all just for that moment, then they joined in the celebrations afterwards. Not sure why they just can't do that?

Re: Dermot Gallagher exonerates us in all pen claims!!

The VAR ruling out our goal is a worrying one. If I was reviewing it, I'd work out that Barnes was offside and in the line of the goalkeeper.

Re: Who should leave in the Summer ?

JBG, Defour are only on this list due to their injury records.

Brady to a lesser extent, but it might be worth letting him fully recover this summer as his was a bad injury.

I think one of the things we should have learned from this season, is that we can't afford to carry injury prone players.

you can hit the bar 5 times miss three open goals and have 0 shots on target or you could hit 5 long rangers straight at the keeper and have 5 shots on target.

Biggest difference this season is that we are letting in a lot of self inflicted goals at key times.

The emergence of McNeill has been a major major boost at just the right time.

If we get injuries to Barnes or Wood, we have the personnel to go 4-5-1.
